However, Shawn’s parents still want to celebrate Christmas with Jess while their son is away. This is where Jess meets Shawn’s handsome cousin (Long), but once Shawn comes back into the picture, Christmas with the Campbells gets a whole lot more complicated. There have been a ton of Christmas comedies over the past few years that it’s hard to keep track of all of them at this point. Especially the ones that involve our main character breaking up with her arrogant boyfriend only to end up in the arms of an “all man”. Whereas Christmas with the Campbells has this classic setup, the intrigue of her ex’s parents inviting her over for Christmas helps separate her from her crowded romantic subgenre.
